I really want a hobo bag like this one:



I've been searching for a pattern, but I haven't found one yet. Do any of you have a suggestion, or do you know how to make one?

Check out Berocco's site.  I think they have a similar bag  - or 2.

The closest one was a felted bag with REALLY weird construction. I don't know if I could duplicate it in a dk weight yarn and a smaller gauge. Do you have any other ideas?

Well, do you feel comfortable tweaking a pattern to make it suit your needs?  Because there are lots of  basic hobo patterns out there:

you could tweak this by making it a little smaller and doing an i-cord strap instead .  One of the SNB books (I think SNB nation)  has insrtructions for adding  beads while knitting.

Thanks, I think that one would work!! I think I could make it smaller by using dk weight yarn and smaller needles. Maybe Walmart (my only supply store in the area) has some cool beads or dangly things.

Cool, glad that one may work for you.  I have it on my future project list, but I don't want to do  it quite as big as that one either.  I can't really tell from your pic, but I was thinking it had an I-cord strap - I could be wrong.... but an I-cord would be better than a plain garter stitch as it wouldn't stretch out.  My walmart actually has a pretty impressive selection of yarn and beads and even purse handles, so hopefully yours does too.  Good luck with it and make sure to post pics! =)
